"Purchaser Gary and Lisa Tranter: Testimonial. I had returned to the Hutt Valley after being away for over 10 years. I was trying to find a home that suited my lifestyle and budget. I had been visiting open homes, searching the net, trade me and local papers. I was getting very frustrated with agents who where only interested in looking after the possibility of a sale and their commission as apposed to helping me find what I needed/wanted and at a price that was honest and fair. I was spending all my spare time searching but not finding anything. I was told by a colleague that Gary and Lisa Tranter were just the kind of agents I needed. I meet Gary and Lisa Tranter and found them to be wonderful people; they listened to what I had to say about what I wanted in a home, my wants, needs and what I would like to have if I could afford it. They also listened to my bad experiences with other agents. I am very pleased to say that the referral I got from my colleague was the best I have ever had. After a couple of conversations Gary and Lisa Tranter presented me with a few houses that they thought would interest me. One wet Sunday they took me to view them. By the time we got to the 3rd house I knew they had been listening very closely. I loved the house, it had everything I wanted and then some, the price was right and after a few hiccups (out of anyone’s control) Gary and Lisa assisted me in acquiring my new home. A house buyer is never the easiest person to make happy especially when spending a lot of their hard earned money. Gary and Lisa showed total professionalism the entire time I dealt with them, even when things got scratchy. I have total faith in their integrity and professionalism and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking for a tireless team of upfront and honest agents who can be counted on. Thanks Gary and Lisa I love my new home!!! Simon Karam Retail Manager Upper Hutt Wellington"

"Vendor Testimonial Working with Garry & Lisa from the Upper Hutt Tommy’s Team We weren’t really looking to buy a home… We never expected to be selling our home. We were only looking at what was out there. This is our story of working with Garry and Lisa. First we met Lisa… Our first interactions were with Lisa were at an open home. Lisa was running the open home and provided us with an information pack. She showed us around and then left us to discover & absorb the home in our own time. Lisa’s approach was great. We never felt pressured yet we knew that she was there to assist at any point. The follow up… Lisa and Garry were quick to follow up via the phone after the open home. Even though they knew we weren’t really looking to sell, they offered to have the Tommy’s team complete an appraisal of our existing home. We did our homework and Tommy’s did theirs… We undertook our own appraisal of what we believed our home to be worth. We put aside our emotional attachments and adopted a pragmatic and realistic approach. Then we met Garry… Garry provided us with the feedback from the Tommy’s appraisal. It was realistic and matched our expectations based on our own research. This gave us the confidence we needed that Garry & Lisa, with the team from Tommy’s, were working in our best interests. As a result, we entered the market based on their advice and within 3 weeks we had sold. The key to our success… 1. Being realistic about what our property was worth in the current economic climate. 2. Using “BEO”. We had been put off looking at places that provided no indication of the vendor’s expected price range. We didn’t want to put people off with “Tender” or “By Negotiation”. We wanted people to know exactly what we were expecting. 3. Using Open2View. The cost is minimal, the photos are fantastic and you receive daily reports on how many times your property as been viewed. 4. Open Homes. Short term pain for long term gain. And best value for money! 5. Being flexible for additional viewings. At the end of the day, we entered the market to sell, not dwell. 6. Regular feedback. Garry and Lisa provided feedback after each open home about the reaction of attendees and the degree of interest being expressed.

"Purchasers 02.11.10 I moved with my wife and little son to settle in Wellington few months ago. During one of our open home visits we met with Garry and Lisa who showed exceptional care and immediately started their mission to find a suitable house for us. Lisa's smile relived us from the frustration and tiredness. Garry moved the extra mile to meet our very special requirements and reached a satisfactory solution to our situation. He also contacted his colleagues/friends in Auckland and Dunedin to get for us the best sale prices to our properties there. Since then we became a close friends with Garry's family and depend on their support in our daily difficulties. Lisa and Garry are very friendly and always like to help their customers. As friends we usually go to visit them in the weekly open homes and enjoy their treatment to people. Lisa/Garry, thank you very much for your care and support. Samer & Faten "

"Purchaser 12.04.11 Recently Garry & Lisa helped my daughter purchase a house. It’s been an totally positive experience. They’ve been extremely thoughtful and helpful with every detail all the way and have made it fun. The little ‘extras’ (chocs etc) have left a nice taste too. I’d recommend Tommy’s to anyone – Thanks Garry & Lisa for everything, you’re a great team. Denys M: 021 411 560 "
